For the 9th and final time Alexander will present Europe’s largest classical concert, the Klassik Open Air, with his orchestra the Nuremberg Symphony. This will be his last performance with the orchestra as Chief Conductor and marks the end of an era.

An estimated 80,000 people are expected to attend as Shelley, the Symphoniker, guest soloist Daniel Hope and the massed Philharmonic and Hans-Sachs choirs mark the occasion with a programme entitled “Last Night” featuring music by Wagner, Mendelssohn, Bruch and Elgar.

The performance will be broadcast live on both Bavarian Radio and Television and can be streamed online. A special night to say “Auf Wiedersehen, Nürnberg!”
